Memorise: But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.1 Corinthians 2:10
Bible in one year: Hebrews 11-13
One weapon available to us as soldiers in God's army which is honoured in Heaven, on earth and beneath the earth, and a weapon that can never fail us is the name of Jesus. Another weapon we must always use is the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. Whenever God's word is correctly applied to a given situation, the Holy Spirit skillfully uses the sword to deliver victory in that situation. Hebrews 4:12 says,
"for the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
The word of God is spirit and alive. It is full of power, extremely sharp and operates in every plane of existence physical, spiritual, intellectual, psychological, physiological, financial, biological, etc. It is not limited by time and space, so it can be sent to address a problem in the past or create a good outcome in the future.
The word of God can affect the tripartite constituents of man - spirit, soul and body. The word discerns the thoughts and plans of the human heart just like the Holy Spirit searches out the thoughts and plans in God's heart (1 Corinthians 2:9-11). If you are conversant with the word by learning it, memorising it, meditating on it, preaching it to win souls regularly and obeying it, whenever you apply it to a situation, it will surely give you results. In fact when you preach it, it will search the hearts of your hearers and give you feedback. This is why at some point, you will be speaking out their hearts and they will think somebody who knows them has gone to tell you about them. Nobody told you. It is just the word in action! Never joke with the Bible! It is more than a literature book. It is more than just the world's best-selling book. It is not just men's words but was scripted by the Holy Spirit. The word written by the Spirit is made spirit whenever the Holy Spirit takes it over. Draw closer to the word of God so that you can be more victorious.
Key Point: It takes you being under God's authority to operate by His authority
